The BoldHeartMama desires to enjoy living out the choices that she’s made for herself and for her family. She is a relentless learner: curious, inquisitive, and open to the possibilities of her life and of the human condition. She understands that there isn't one right way—she asks questions that dig deeper to make sense of it all and to find her own path.

She pays attention to and nurtures whatever it is she really cares about, letting go of the rest (for now) knowing she can't do and be everything all at once. She embraces her imperfections in favor of "good enough"—her imperfect self, her imperfect home, her imperfect mothering, her imperfect desires—and she never stops evolving as a woman and mother. She is a BoldHeart, authentic and true to herself.

The BoldHeartMama knows there is only this one life and she's all in. She is present and engaged and making things happen. Her intuition is her guide. She seeks to be inspired and relies on her creativity and her resourcefulness to solve the big and little challenges that she and her family face together as they navigate their relationships and their world.

The BoldHeartMama is willing to take calculated risks to make her biggest dreams come true. She is living out her BoldHeart in the moment, making small moves and taking little steps that add up, and she's cultivating a good life for herself and her family in the process. Read More!

I'm feeling lucky

Have you ever used an ovulation predictor kit?

We used one the month we got pregnant with Roscoe and I swear by them. I love the digital Clearblue easy tests because 24 - 36 hours before you ovulate you see this little cutie:

A smiley face! It's a perfect depiction.

I also highly recommend the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. Some people swear by fertility charting. I tried it for a month but decided that it's not my style. I prefer a combination of basic cycle tracking, OPKs, and (super easy!) monitoring of cervical changes.

Since my cycles returned in February, they've been as short as 26 days and as long as 34 days. I had my thyroid removed in 2008 and the medication that I take every morning replaces the hormone Thyroxine, which is normally produced by the thyroid. The dosing system is imperfect though, and sometimes my TSH levels are off--like they have been the last few months--which usually affects my cycles by making them longer. Not what I want right now!!

Hopefully, everything will go smoothly this month. Tomorrow I get to begin using the OPK! Each pack has seven tests so I hope I'm not starting too early.
